Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT SEPARATES PURE INTENSITY BASKETBALL FROM OTHER TRAINING COMPANIES?
Our workouts are unlike any other in Minnesota – they are fast paced and challenging with maximum attention to detail and organized and performed in a way that keeps players engaged and on the edge of their comfort zones. It is our goal that every player we work with is challenged physically, mentally and emotionally in every workout we conduct to ensure maximum progress and promote success in games. We do this by having our clients perform the same dynamic, cutting edge and innovative concepts, skills and drills we use to train our professional, college and elite high school players – but at the level of each client or group. We work relentlessly to take the mind and body of all we train to a place they have never been before – which is why we are quickly becoming recognized beyond Minnesota as one of the premier skills development programs in the country.
WHAT QUALIFICATIONS/EXPERIENCE DO PURE INTENSITY BASKETBALL TRAINERS HAVE?
All of our trainers have college or professional basketball experience on a playing or coaching level. We believe skills coaches must have the ability to demonstrate the fundamentals we help our clients acquire, therefore we work just as hard on our own skills set as our clients do. We are constant and continual learners to ensure we remain ahead of our competition and to give our clients an edge over theirs. We have attended numerous skills coaching events and maintain communication with some of the premier skills trainers in the country – trainers such as: Ganon Baker, Micah Lancaster, Mike Lee, Damin Altizer and Matthew Conboy. We also attend elite high school, college and professional team practices so our players understand the latest game situational skills and concepts. We have been fortunate that those we have worked with have had such positive things to say about us, check out our Testimonials page for feedback from some of the best coaches and players around.
WHAT AGES DO YOU WORK WITH?
Elementary School (Grades 4-5), Middle School (Grades 6-8), High School (Grades 9-12), Collegiate and Professional aged players.
HOW LONG IS A TRAINING SESSION?
We offer 60 minute and 90 minute sessions. We suggest players in 6th grade or younger begin with 60 minute sessions.
HOW MANY PLAYERS TRAIN TOGETHER?
It depends on what the client is looking for. Some prefer 1 on 1 sessions to focus solely on execution and maximum repetition – others form their own small groups consisting of between 2-8 players. Small group workouts include the same skills advancement curriculum and concepts as the 1 on 1 workouts but allow for situational competition and workout variations. We suggest that small groups are capped at 8 players to ensure each player receives detailed instruction and personal attention.
